Many properties are improving facilities that help golfers sharpen their skills and bring new players to the game. But to maximize their appeal and user satisfaction, they must get the same care as golf courses.
The Pleasant Hill, Calif., property features an 18-hole golf course that was recently redesigned by Robert Trent Jones II, and an enhanced practice facility that includes a 40-yard full-grass tee box, extended range area, 20 hitting stalls, dedicated putting and chipping greens, a variety of bunkers, and a hard-lie practice area.
The Pleasant Hill, Calif., club will move forward with a golf course renovation that will improve play, cut water consumption, diminish fertilizer use, and reduce overall maintenance requirements.
Nineteen professionals and managers will be honored at the group’s annual meeting in December, including Len Dumas, General Manager of Contra Costa CC, and Pat Finlen, Director of Golf Course Maintenance Operations, The Olympic Club.
